Hi, I'm Pete. You may remember me from such FAWMs as all of them since about 2008.
I'm the songwriting half of Balance Lost. The other half being Matt, who sometimes makes videos. Some of these can be seen on our YouTube channel.
Song friends! Please listen to them too, they are good.
and of course the adorable
I'm up for collaborating.

Aww thanks so much for your comments, especially on Peluche! Glad I stopped on here by accident! 😀
Thanks for the big listening sesh, man! Too kind.
Hey hey thanks for your kind comments, much appreciated. Particularly please that the collab doesn't sound clunky as can happen sometimes when you don't actually get to meet face to face!
Thank you for the big pile of comments! I didn't mention it in the liner notes for Black Ribbon but actually what you picked up on was exactly what I was thinking about while writing--organic, country/Americana-type imagery contrasting with the synthpop music.
Aw shit, I so wish it had somehow been your Hawaiian shirt that I had found! That would have been one of the strangest coincidences ever. There was definitely one called Zanzibar, think I only went there a couple of times. McClusky's and Destiny / Elite were the choice venues of my shit flatmates. I wasn't intentionally aiming for a PandAz sound but I'm not surprised their influence occasionally leaks into my songs!
Oh, and re: Automatic Friend - yeah, I realised it was getting a little bit "ambiguously sexy" as I wrote and leaned into it, probably with a sinister grin.
I always appreciate the thought and detail in your comments, cheers!
Thank you for the world's longest comment! Amy similarity to the Brothers Grimm was accidental and not a meta-Damon nod.
Thanks for the comment-storm! I am a nervous wreck already about tonight. My neck hurts and I’m almost certain it’s the result of my body being twisted into an uncomfortable anxiety hunch all day. 😬
Haha, love your dog commentary... not far off, though he's more into barking at possums/rats than practising his singing. We'll get there though. Oh and the plinky plonkies you hear may be the banjo? Or all the washboard auxiliary parts (woodblock, cymbal and backiing board), all Susy's handywork!
Hey! Thanks for all your listening and comments today. Much appreciated 😀 I’ve so far had the day off (may still do a bit before bed) but will be back on it tomorrow I think!
Haha i'm an idiot - I could only picture you doing quick breaths, didn't even occur to me it'd be in the hands...
Christ, you hammered out those last 4, congrats! All over them later..
Hey Pete! Thanks for checking out “Chasers Night”. I’m glad you enjoyed our collab and it did it’s job of translating well with the lyrics and music. Appreciate it! 😀
And haha, I'm glad you enjoyed the mouth trumpet! It somehow always pleases me to put some of it in a song!
Thanks for putting my song in the podcast! 😀) Though I haven't had the courage to listen to the podcast yet, haha! I know what next fawm-related challenge will be 😝
When's the next episode of the podcast? I'm getting withdrawal symptoms. I might need that Twix after all.
Of course! I hear ya.. I still have to listen to a lot more as well. I really hope I can write a few more too. I've been so busy with other things and it's hard to really focus on FAWM as much as I would like to. Maybe if I wasn't working this would be my other job. 😀
Ah you missed a good match but I won't pretend it didn't completely shred my nerves. Didn't manage to get to sleep until 3am I was so wired.
Thanks so much for your in-depth and insightful comments about our songs. It's always really great to hear how music specifically impacts people and what they see and experience. Also, thanks for sharing our music on your podcast!
Wow - thank you kindly for the comments. I really appreciate it! I'm glad to have made your acquaintance - listening to In The Corridor right now and really digging it!
I support your wildness and craziness. Welcome back sir!
Thanks, Balance Lost. Good luck to you too.
I'm off to a slow non-start, but I'm hoping a trip to the hardware store later will inspire me.
Thursday and Friday off work. That's how I roll! Definitely up for a synthwave collab. If not, we should just go straight up gangsta rap. We be ballers, y'all!
The magnets thing is supposed to be the reason for the incarceration, our proud protagonist too stubborn to admit he actually doesn't have a clue. I don't think that really comes across though, need to revise that last verse a bit...
Bring on the good stuff.
I hope you'll have a great FAWM.
Heyyy will try me best - good luck to ya
Peeeeeee-ponpompidou!! I'm watching you (^3^)
PG Lover, I hope we manage to make sweet music together this year!
Welcome back. Looking forward to some of your magic music.
hey dude, welcome to '18
Hullo you! It's so good to be back. I'm excited for new Balance Lost songs!
We should defo do a collab. It's weird we haven't before in FAWM, considering we live ten minutes walk from each other!
Hey! I’ll try my best but doubt I’ll be able to match Lizzo, Water Me was probably my SOTY. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with this year
Petey G! I already know you're in but it feels weird not leave a comment anyhoo.
Hey! I can never work out if I like the Dusty Springfield bits on that one. Personally I'm slightly obsessed with Left to my Own Devices, but I made a mix CD of most of their singles about four years ago and it's been resident in my car ever since. Total bangers.
Peeeeteeee. Hope you're in sir. Course you bloody are.
